VALDOSTA – Crews will be installing a traffic signal at the top of the Interstate 75 South off-ramp of Exit 22/U.S. 41/state Route 7/North Valdosta Road to alleviate congestion and move traffic more efficiently.

A loop will first be cut into the pavement and vehicle detection equipment will be installed. The only lane closure is planned for Tuesday, May 10, on the ramp and Shiloh Road, but motorists should be aware that personnel will be in and out of the road during the week. Flaggers will control traffic.

Weather permitting, installation may be complete and the signal may be operational by Friday. The Georgia Department of Transportation does not activate new signals on Fridays or Mondays.

Work starts Monday, May 9; lane closures are scheduled May 10 on the off-ramp and Shiloh Road.

    A traffic light should also be installed at the north bound off ramp at exit 22. That is a very dangerous area as you cannot see on coming traffic coming over the overpass if you are turning left.

      Boy ain’t that the truth. Started to go and with a big truck you don’t go as fast and before you know it there was a car half way across the bridge speeding of course. Had to stop real quick or get hit. The line of traffic in the morning or evening makes it worst.

    • Bo Bowen says:

      That’s where one is needed, the North bound off ramp. I fail to see how a stop light on the other side is going to help anything other than congest it more. What actually needs to happen is to four lane the entire overpass.

    I thought the whole area was going to be 4 laned. What happened to that plan?
